I hope that no one will offend from my humeric title...

While watching birds in a fish pond I saw those two flying like that around me, I had the x1.4 tele-converter on, so I made the shot with it, I hadn't any time to choose something else.

I am not familliar with those two species of dragonflies, but I liked the two colours of them.

Not offended at all. Did you see they're both colourblind.
Very nice capture Elroyie, excellent DOF and blurred BG. Good job

Great moment Elroyie,
Interesting composition, nice details
Thanks for posting

Elroyie, Very good sharpness & details in your lead "69er"! A bit risque on the title there! ;-)) The nuetral BG gives good contrast to your "69er's" also..Good POV & the red looks great. Well done!

Good title, and of course, very good photo of these insects.
Really you were just in the precise moment, very lucky. I can imagine your heart beating... please don't go, please don't go!
The definition is perfect, and the DOF used having all the BG blurred, helps to give more attention to the little couple. Very good shot. TFS Best regards Elroyie.

This is another exceptional macro. What impresses me the most is the DOF. Its huge! Also a very nice moment and very sharp details. What do use to sharpen in PP? Great shot, well done.

You have a steady hand, well done using the monster tele for this capture.
Your exposure is very warm which I like and the use of DOF and your POV is spot on.
Well done on this capture. Your title is funny :) :)

Just wondering, what is the background? I like it.
